Prince Harry and Meghan�s Interior Designer
Is Being Sued by a Client in the U.S. Earlier this year, Prince Harry and Meghan
Markle embarked on a major renovation of Frogmore Cottage. The Duke and Duchess of Sussex completely
transformed the Windsor property before they moved in this spring, spending over $3 million
on the project. Prince Harry and Meghan reportedly hired former
Soho House head of design Vicky Charles of Charles & Co., whose other clients have included
George and Amal Clooney as well as David and Victoria Beckham, to help with the remodel. The Sussexes were already familiar with her
work, as not only are they both big fans of the exclusive members-only club, but they
also employed Charles to work on their former Cotswolds home. While Prince Harry and Meghan seem to be quite
happy with their new home, it seems that one of Charles� other clients, real estate executive
Andrea Olshan, is less thrilled. According to the New York Post, Olshan has
filed a lawsuit against Charles� firm, alleging that while she hired the interior designer
to take care of every single detail at her newly built, 12,000-square-foot East Hampton
home, as well as fix up a second Hamptons house and redo her New York apartment, Charles
neglected the project in favor of her other, royal-related work. The lawsuit asserts that �Ms. Charles, by
all appearances, began to separate herself from the project, upon information and belief,
to work for more �A-List� clients such as the Duke and Duchess of Sussex who are
reported to have hired Ms. Charles to renovate their Frogmore Cottage in anticipation of
the birth of their first child, baby Archie Harrison, in mid-2019,� per the Telegraph. Olshan alleges Charles delegated the work
to her �fresh out of design school� employees, and that after a year, there was barely any
progress. After a meeting this summer, Olshan says Charles
was apologetic about the �lack of progress,� and �acknowledged that she had been utterly
disengaged�[she] chalked it up to her business overseas.� But instead of taking charge
of Olshan�s homes, the design firm proceeded to quit the next day, and refused to refund
the $239,000 already spent on the $500,000 job. We�re just going to have to wait and see
what happens with this lawsuit, but Charles might have another royal project coming up
in the near future. Prince Harry and Meghan are reportedly checking
out homes on the West Coast (more specifically, in Malibu), and surely they�ll want to bring
in their trusted interior designer before they settle into the place.
